We’ll find the best

solution for your smile

and your pocket.

We realise that the cost of braces is not easy for a lot of patients and we believe in being transparent with our charges. This allows you to make an informed decision about the treatment you are considering for your self or for a family member. Orthodontics is complicated… so let’s make one aspect of it a lot easier!

What’s included in the cost

  • Consultation fees
  • Orthodontic records
  • Additional consultations before and during treatment
  • Orthodontic appliances or braces
  • Adjustments, materials and products
  • Retainers
  • After treatment reviews and follow ups

We hate hidden/unexpected costs and charges, so we give you an all inclusive price… it is that simple! When shopping around for the best price for braces, make sure you get a written quote from your orthodontist and make sure you are clear on who is doing the treatment (is it a specialist orthodontist or a dentist doing braces?).

We offer

  • Interest free payment plans
  • Flexible payment options
  • Small monthly installments
  • Up-front payment discounts
  • All inclusive quotes and pricing (no surprise hidden fees or charges)
  • Discounts for family members



Depending on the problem being corrected, this treatment option may be the only treatment required. Costs vary depending on the complexity of the design, the nature of the problem, the duration of treatment and the number of visits required.




The costs of braces vary as the treatments are individualised and vary from one person to another. Some practices have extra costs and charge extra for invisible brackets… we believe in giving our patients options and charging a standard fee. So if you are choosing metal or clear brackets the same fee applies.




Almost all practices in New Zealand offer Invisalign at a much increased rate when compared to conventional braces, meaning higher treatment fees. Invisalign treatment is offered at a standard cost at Shakespeare Orthodontics – providing some of the most competitive pricing. Trust a specialist orthodontist to get it right!




Incognito braces require more time to plan, to place and to adjust than standard braces. While this unfortunately makes them slightly more expensive, you can enjoy the benefit of hidden braces with great outcomes.
